Nine days. That’s how long I had to wait to get this shot. I’d ridden the motorbike from Melbourne all the way up through the Flinders Ranges, Marree, Alice, across the Plenty Highway, up to the Atherton Tablelands, Cairns, Cape Trib, Cooktown, Weipa and finally up to the tip of Cape York, the Northernmost point in Australia. After some thought I decided the best shot would be an aerial of the tip, looking back, so now I need a plane (hadn't bought a drone yet). Turned out the caravan park I camped at (Punsand Bay) had a helicopter right there on the beach. Not cheap, but perfect for getting the shot. First sunny morning and I’m in business and that’s what took nine days. Every morning (it was a morning shot) was either overcast, raining, or too cloudy. Normally I’d head off to the next destination and come back another time but it’s a long, hard ride to get there so I had to stick around. There are definitely worse places to be stuck for nine days but I was keen to get back on the road so it was pretty frustrating. Then finally, on the ninth morning, some sun.

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).
The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.
The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.
If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.
